Killing of entire Alaska wolf pack upsets National Park Service…And Me!

Alaska did the same thing in 2010:

Alaska Fish and Game wiped out all four members of the collared Webber Creek wolf pack that ranged in Alaska’s Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve. They were part of a sixteen year ongoing research project by the National Park Service.

Exposing the Big Game

Before admiring the “subsistence” lifestyle, think of wolves that the state of Alaska shoots from planes to provide “game” for their hunters…

FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — Alaska Fish and Game officials killed an Eastern Interior wolf pack last week, and the National Park Service — which had been studying the animals — is none too pleased.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that all 11 wolves in the Lost Creek pack near Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve were shot. That included the pack’s alpha pair, which had been fitted with tracking collars as part of an ongoing research project.

Doug Vincent-Lang, acting director for the Alaska Division of Wildlife Conservation, says the wolves were in an area adjacent to the preserve that has been targeted by the state for aerial predator control, which is part of an effort to boost moose and caribou numbers.

  1. Wolves are wonderful animals, read “Never Cry Wolf” and learn to understand them more fully. They certainly are not any where near as cruel and the human being. Leave them to live their lives as they should, they have just as much right to this earth as all other living things.

  4. How sad that these people feel like very manly men by using aircraft to unfairly hunt animals that are doing nothing to harm their environment!

  7. Well they seem to have become very good at killing off packs of wolves. I was at a talk last night about a book called “Among Wolves” and hearing excerpts about killing another pack a few years ago. What a tragedy…

  10. Once again the savage human has commited a terrible act – Is it because you fear the intelligence of the wolf? You must have a very low opinion of yourselves to resort to these acts of terrorism. Government leaders are permitting this, making them just as base as the killers.

  12. It’s very sad for all of us who love the wolves. I also feel so angry that this is legal. We need our laws changed in this country. Right now they suck if you have four legs.
